The recent hailstorm that swept through Illinois on April 12, 2014 left many property owners throughout Barrington, Lake Zurich, Crystal Lake, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Cary, Grayslake in need of major roofing, siding and gutter repairs. There are many residential and commercial property owners who still need a thorough property inspection.
Remember, your property is just as susceptible to hail damage as your
vehicle is! When hail hits your roof, siding, gutters, windows, patios, and exteriors, it can lead to severe damage to your residential or commercial property by bruising, cracking, denting, and granule loss which can void material warrantees and may cause leaks in the future, as well as premature aging and loss of life.
Common signs of damage to your property structures include granule loss, small to large impacts, broken tile, split cedar shakes, dented aluminum siding, cracked vinyl siding, torn screens, cracked windows or broken seams, dents to the gutters, and much more. Hail and wind storm damage may not be visible from the ground. It’s important to get a proper inspection from a trained inspector.
Protect Your Property!
It doesn’t take much of a hailstorm to leave an impact to your residential or commercial property. If undetected, hail may cause severe long-term damages including leaks and severe interior water damage. If undetected, hail damage may void the manufacture warranty as well as shorten the service life of your roof, siding, gutters, windows, patios, and exteriors!
Most people think that tornadoes cause more damage than hailstorms mainly due to the attention we see on the news on tornado damage, but that is not always the case!
A short 5-minute hailstorm can cause more damage in some cases then a raging tornado!
Why? Because hailstones come down just like rain, and the impact of thousands of hailstones destroy with extreme velocity! For instance, shingle roofs can potentially have bruising, loss of life, and loss of granules.
Importance of a Hail Damage Assessment:
Hail damage may not be immediately apparent or visible after a severe thunderstorm, hail, or windstorm; this is why it’s extremely important to have a properly trained and certified inspector inspect your property thoroughly both the exterior & interior of your property.
Leaks may not occur immediately after the storm, but can potentially wreak havoc to your property in the future, including deterioration and premature aging, but also will potentially leave your roofing system susceptible to damage from even minor windstorms, let alone a potential tornado.
